Nokia EVP tweets: major MeeGo milestone by end of year, no Android, N8 by end of Q3

August 6th, 2010 at 10:40 AM

On Wednesday, we told you that Nokia’s head of sales and markets, Niklas Savander, would be hosting a Twitter question and answer session on Thursday afternoon. The event went off as planned, and here is an overview of some of the topics covered and answers given:

  • The EVP acknowledged that the long time between product announcements and product releases is “not helping anyone.”
  • When asked about the release date of the N8, all that was said was “end of Q3.”
  • When asked about MeeGo, he said his company would have, “a major product milestone by the end of the year.”
  • When asked about Nokia handsets running Android: “our platform choices (symbian and meego) gives us the best opp to deliver value and of course qt will play key role.”
  • When asked about the possibility of partnering with U.S. carrier Sprint to release a handset: “we have no plans at this time.”
  • Question: “a fast and reliable OS that I can develop for! Symbian is slow (at the latest after 1y of usage) and developer-hostile!” Answer: “Qt will give you the tools to develop and allow u to address both symbian and meego devices.”

Those were, more or less, the highlights of the chat outlined by Nokia. Hit up the Nokia Conversations blog to read all the tweets and see a video wrap-up of the Q&A session. Thoughts?
